Bug Description

Steps to reproduce (in both natty and oneiric):
- Change the sound volume/brightness of a laptop in order to get a notify-osd bubble, or alternatively install http://apt.ubuntu.com/p/libnotify-bin and issue the command "notify-send x" to the same effect
- Enter expo mode shortly after triggering the notification

The notification will be displayed on all desktops with a size at which any text would not be readable (see attached screenshot). Additionally, if one mouses over a notification other than that in the top-right desktop, it does not disappear (see same screenshot). And, if one mouses over the area where the original full-size notification was, *all* notifications disappear (see second screenshot).

The above issues can be resolved in one of two ways:
- Hide all notifications when in expo mode, possibly delaying those started during expo to display them on exiting
- Overlay notifications on top of expo, responding to mousing over the same area as they do now

The second would seem the simplest and most sensible solution.
